Jeff Klepper

Cantor

Jeff Klepper is an American Jewish Cantor, and one of the pioneers of the singer-songwriter style that took over American synagogue music during the second half of the 20th century. He started playing the guitar in 1962 and was a song-leader in NFTY summer camps. At those camps, he started to compose parts of the prayer by himself. Klepper was ordained as a cantor in 1980 in the HUC campus in New York.
